Beautyrest Platinum Mattress Review

Beautyrest Platinum is a mid to upper end collection of mattresses from Simmons Beautyrest, a leading American company. We’ve tested and reviewed each Platinum mattress for a super comprehensive and detailed understanding that we’re sharing with you here:

Beautyrest Mattress Collections

Platinum is the middle line of three collections from Beautyrest:

  1. Black (premium prices $1,799 to $4,799)
  2. Platinum (mid to upper range prices $1,079 to $2,049)
  3. Silver (lower to mid-range prices $599 to $1,499)

Type of Construction

Beautyrest Platinum beds have pocketed coil innersprings. The hybrid models have top layers of memory foam.

Beautyrest Platinum - An Overview

Platinum mattresses have pocketed coils at their core and those coils are individually wrapped, not interconnected like traditional innersprings. This is a better innerspring design because it allows the coils to individually react and contour to your body’s curves. Platinum mattresses have 1,000 coils (in a queen size.) The more expensive Platinum models have a Backcare 3X layer which adds 2,000 micro coils in another layer to enhance the individualized body support.

Platinum also includes some bed models that are called “hybrids”. The Platinum Hybrid models have top layers of memory foam for that super conforming memory foam feeling. Hybrid models are kind of the best of both worlds since they still keep the innerspring support so you don’t sink too far into the beds.

Another big feature in Platinum mattresses is a cooling layer just under the cover they call “InfiniCool Surface.” This layer cools the bed 20% better.

    More about Simmons Beautyrest

    Simmons Mattress Company has been a leader in mattress manufacturing for over 100 years. Their Beautyrest flagship brand has been a household name for many decades. Many people remember the “bowling ball” commercial where a bowling ball was dropped on a mattress to highlight their pocketed coils (a glass of wine would sit undisturbed when the ball bounced on the other side of the bed.)

    In recent years Simmons merged with Serta into the Serta Simmons Bedding Company, making them one of the 2 largest mattress companies in the world (TempurSealy is the other.) Simmons now markets the Black, Platinum and Silver mattress collections.

    Being a large manufacturer, Simmons engineers and makes many of its own components in addition to manufacturing. With their longevity and size they have accumulated a lot of experience and knowledge making mattresses. Simmons makes millions of mattresses each year and they’ve maintained a positive reputation over the long run. While some review sites call out consumer complaints, those sites fail to provide the context that there are tens of millions of customers sleeping on Beautyrest mattresses. And all taken altogether Simmons Beautyrest has a highly positive customer reputation.

    Conclusion

    Beautyrest Platinum mattresses are designed and targeted to be above entry level mattresses in features and comfort. So this line of beds includes more features than the entry level Silver line which also comes from Beautyrest.

    Platinum mattresses have more pocketed coils, 1,000 in a queen mattress. They also have better cooling materials and more layers of gel and other foams as well. The upper end models have a layer of micro coils which really makes a difference in contouring support. And of course, they have their Hybrid models which have their own feel blending memory foam tops with the pocketed coil springs.

    These mattresses are designed to be the really good ones from Beautyrest (just under their luxury Black line.) In our view they achieve their objective combining quality materials and delivering beds that feel good. We see they are generally well received by consumers – Beautyrest sells millions of these mattresses. While we have noticed some consumer complaints on other review sites, those reviews miss the context that there are millions of satisfied owners. In our retail business experience the mattresses are well liked and are rated highly by those customers.
